Unfortunately I do not have XP installed. If you start a new Visual Studio project and add a new KryptonRibbonForm then F5 or build does the problem still appear then? What happens if you change the allowformchrome property. It may be that there is a problem with the installation of the krypton explorer.
I would like to know if the problem appears if you create a new ribbon form on your own and whether changing the allowformchrome property changes things. Good luck!
No, the FormChrome will not work if you don' t have Windows-Themes enabled (like Luna on XP oder Aero in Vista (or any 3rd party themes)).
Meaning the Form will not draw the chrome border if you run windows in classic theme.
Your post was not there when I replied, last. Sorry.
I changed to the XP theme and it looked correct, but I guess I am confused as to why the theme matters. I have seen / tired other form components and never had to change my theme. They looked like my MS word 2007 example, above (while in the classic theme). The MS word example, above, was drawn under the classic theme.
